RE: Cheap Trick Christmas
The current Slade line up are playing at a motorhome show in Lincoln in September that I will be working at, along with the Bay City Rollers. I rub shoulders with all the big names, it was Tom Jones and Rick Astley (who covered AC/DC and Foo Fighters !) at the weekend..

RE: Cheap Trick Christmas
Slade did about the only actual xmas song I think doesn't suck. It would be a good song with different lyrics. I would enjoy hearing them do it. That said, I want you for xmas was cool... even the marionettes plus the smokin hot Jenny the elf.
I am not very interested in an xmas album.

I loooooved the Nick Lowe Christmas album!

If they cover Christmas With The Devil by Spinal Tap, that would be bloody splendid.

A super spooky cover of Spirit In The Sky with Tom playing the riff on one of Lemmy's Rickebackers & Marshall rigs would be better than apple pancakes

Cross-posting from CT YouTube page...

In a new video interview, Rick blasts through a list of artists they're covering for Christmas: https://youtu.be/AZWcvopHN_Y?t=271

The list includes, seriously, The Eagles.

Bet it's Please Come Home for Christmas.

Which was actually a cover by the Eagles of a 60s era soul tune by Charles Brown (really):

Or maybe our fave four are fast-forwarding into a Funky New Year? Ha! https://youtu.be/Lyd8aCkcFmE?t=37

RE: Cheap Trick Christmas
The Waitresses - Christmas wrapping - fabulous bassline.

As to the current line up of Slade - I run The Slade Archive at http://www.slayed.co.uk and I have to say that the current incarnation of the band are hardly mentioned on there. There's a good reason for that. I do think the Wizzard single is better than the Slade one, but the Slade one is the one my band do every year, as it's far easier to play!!
